will be given the first question. mitt romney will have the final word tonight. the debate will be broken up into six 15-minute segments for a 90-minute debate. it will include three on the economy, one on health care, one on governing and one on the state of government. the role of government, i should say. now, both candidates will be standing at podiums. no strict time limits. each candidate will have two minutes to answer that question and then the rest of the segment will be an open discussion about the topic at hand. so that is how the debate is going to do. aides with the obama campaign say his goal is to deliver his message in a crisp and clear manner. to not seem too long winded as sometimes he has in the past. so that's really his goal and also to make the case about why he thinks he can do a better job in these next four year of turning the economy around and to really give people specifics. as i said, the first lady will be there tonight. it is their 20th anniversary. no time to really celebrate tonight. they say they will do that this weekend. >> quite a way to celebrate. thanks

romney are talking about their role in the debates. first lady says she mostly offers positive reinforcement but does get nervous. >> i get so nervous at these debates and, you know, i'm like one of those parents watching their kid on the balance beam. you're just standing there, just trying not to, you know, have any expression at all. >> ann romney says she comforts her husband during the debates and he looks for her in the audience. she talked up one of mitt's traditions, too. >> the first thing he does when he gets on stage -- there are a few first things he does. he takes off his watch and put it is on the podium. but then he writes dad on a piece of paper. >> says her husband respects had his father and wants to make him proud. tonight's debate begins at 7:00 pm eastern. >>> our affiliate knov says flight 1862 left for dallas yesterday but had to return because of landing gear problems. passengers say people were crying when the flight crew told passengers to prepare for an emergency landing. >> they said the landing gear -- okay, the wheel might like break or, you know,

can't imagine that romney will bring this up overtly but could he subtly use this in the debate? >> reporter: i don't know. i honestly don't think he's going to go there himself. this is the kind of thing that happens by outside groups or outside activists and the reality is, this is an intensely racially polarized country. barack obama will probably win somewhere around the votes of 80% of all minority voters, growing share of the electorate, but only 40% of white voter. it will be a real challenge after this election to try to bring the country together to govern. he was the first candidate ever to lose white business double digits and win. there is a racial element that is in the backdrop here. not necessarily racism, but very different views about the role of government and very different views about the parties. if it moves things at the margin, could it matter? sure. the last slice of voter also decide this they are forward looking at this point. and 2007 is a long way to reach back when you're dealing with 8% unemployment. >> ron brownstein, thank you so much. >>> the deb

and mitt romney. here is a live look at debate hall at university of denver. we'll again with our debate expert, brett o'donnell of o'donnell and associates, he advised mr. romney earlier this year, coached him in what was considered to be his most successful debate in the premarry in the state of florida. >> wouldn't it be nice if people didn't make accusations somewhere else they weren't willing to defend here? >> nice to see you again. not to have you next to us in the studio but great to see you. >> good to see you. >> let's walk through what we can expect tonight. i know you're not coaching either candidate. what would your advice be? mitt romney must do what and not do what? president obama must do what and not do what? >> sure. governor romney has to make the debate about the president's economic policies and he has to connect those to the economic conditions we're in now. right now, people believe the economy is bad, but they're not blaming the president for it. tonight governor romney, standing face-to-face with president obam has to connect those two things. he can't get defens

in the debate tonight? >> i think it will come up very early in the debate. mitt romney has got to -- i think he will define the debate in this answer, whether he is going to be defensive about it or whether he is going to got offense about it. i think that will probably define the whole debate, because it is going to be about the economy tonight. >> these tapes do matter, at least one tape will matter, and that being the one at the private fund-raiser? >> tamron, what i'm talking about everybody is throwing out the videos, a gotcha moment. i think the voters that matter, the undecided, are not concerned about the videos but the direction of the country. i think at 9:00 tonight, the first time, we are going to see both of these folks on stage giving their personal views on what they want to do with this country. i think that's going to be the moment that matters. >> let me get michael n you talked to people all day around the country. some of those people, conservatives, many i imagine are independents as well. i'm curious, off situation here, i know chip said some people on the other side. but

and mitt romney, candidates going face-to-face for the first time. the debate will focus on domestic policy only. half the time it's going to be dedicated to the economy. there's also going to be a segment on health care, and one on governing leadership and style. joining us from washington to talk about it, democratic strategist donna rizell and anna navarro. both cnn contributeors. this is exciting. i think this is what we all kind of live for when you are into politics. clearly, they're going to be lots of other people who are really just tuning in here treeing to figure out which one they like better. one of the questions that we know is going to be front and center each candidate, whether or not the voters actually trust them in handling the economy. mitt romney says he is going to create 12 million new jobs. is he going to cut income tax rates by 20% to make up the difference by eliminating deductions in credit. is he going to get into some of these details here about how this is all going to shake out? anna, start with you. >> you know, suzanne, i don't know how much time is loued in

that the middle class pain was due to bush policies. that romney and ryan want to repeat. the debate symbolizes a problem for the president. even though the economic collapse happened under bush, four years later, families are still hurting. many in the middle class are barely treading water. all guaranteed fodder for tomorrow night's debate in denver. the first lady is making her way there. first stop in ohio. >> are you fired up? >> reporter: where early voting began today. >> are we going sit back and watch everything we worked for and fought for to just slip away? >> reporter: ann romney got to colorado before her. >> we have a debate coming up. we're excited about that. we're focused. >> reporter: family members' nerves are on edge, as josh romney confided to diane in august. >> i hate the debates. trying to sit there and be cool and keep a smile on your face. inside you want to fall down. >> reporter: four years ago, michelle obama would get so nervous during the debates she didn't like to watch them. she'll be there tomorrow in the debate hall. we turn to david muir who is there. david?

hoping for more of this. it is teed up to be a debate about big ideas. is mitt romney going to deliver? >> i am sure that part of the reason this video is out there, just the day before, is to give romney the opportunity to, perhaps, reference it when you talk about the role of government, when you talk about the economy, he's got some phrases he likes to use about more people being on welfare and all of that, so i would imagine we'll hear some of that. i actually disagree with something mark said. i think this was very much a play for the base. even our nbc news poll, 23% of people said, that 47% comment made them like mitt romney better. so there are people out there who agree with those comments. >> aren't they locked up already? that's a question -- >> no. because remember we've also seen reuters has had the polling and a lot of polling that show some low-income southern whites are thinking he's too richy rich. what it shows is he's still in trouble with his own base and now, you know, obviously the way the white house is trying to set this up, the president is going to talk about

the kinds of voters that you are talking about, mr. romney, in this debate tonight, when you say government is paying too big a role in people's lives. that's a tricky one for him to walk out of. >> are the elderly moochers? he's going to have to answer that question. >> service members on disability? i mean same thing. >> coming on the heels of the romney campaign trying to use joe biden's biden-esque turn of phrase the middle class has been buried and you know, biden has walked that back, you know, is it an indictment of the president? look if you're going to fight for the ground on the middle class i don't know that joe biden is the person you want to be sparring against. >> he is by far the best middle class, working-class figure in this race. but to me, the hannity, drudge, obama thing, the ryan thing, i mean, really? this is all they got? i mean, i found the -- i found nothing that obama said in that speech objectionable or disagreeable, similarly, i find ryan's thing not -- i mean there's a sophisticated and legitimate argument to be made about, you know, entitlement and size of gove

saying the first thing mitt romney does when he gets in these debate is he walks on stage, he puts the watch on the podium. he where is on the piece of paper, dad, because of his dad george romney also ran for president. then he finds ann romney in the crowd. and i think that that -- we'll be watching for that. how governor romney handles the first minutes of his persona tonight will make a big statement about how this whole thing goes. bill: thank you, bret, we'll see you later tonight. bret baier live in denver. 8:55 eastern. you know it's important now. jamie: important enough to stay up. bill: full reaction tomorrow morning right here. jamie: republicans are now seizing on a comment by joe biden on middle class americans. the vice president was trying to fire up a crowd in the swing state of north carolina and many critics say he ended up committing his latest gaffe. you watch and decide. this is deadly earnest, man. how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify? jamie: st

the campaign and coached him on the debates. what is a win for mitt romney tonight? >> mitt has to come out of this debate very substantive and lay out his vision for where he wants to take this country. people need to talk about how great he was and how he looked presidential. i believe it's all about mitt romney. we know the president's skills at debating and talking. he's better off with a teleprompter but he's still a glib guy with a lot of substance. but what we don't know is how good mitt is. he was good against primary opponents. but this is the president of the united states and he has to make his case effectively without being too strident and basically presidential. bill: you said voters have to say maybe. >> today the election would be won by obama in a close election. but we have to shift voters to say i'll give this guy another look. i'm not going to cast my vote tomorrow. i'll look at other two debates and move forward. if he doesn't do well tonight. many of these absentee ballots will be cast and it may be too late to turn around. bill: the viewership actually went higher as

policy, especially the economy. governor romney has been preparing in denver and says tonight's debate will not be about finding a definitive winner. >> in my view, it's not so much winning or losing, or even the people themselves, the president or myself, it's about something bigger than that. these debates are an opportunity for to discuss a pathway forward for america that we would choose. >>reporter: the president has been practicing outside oflation. to his supporters he remains confident, but he's not underestimating his opponent. >> governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >>reporter: now, pbs' jim le hrer airs tonight at 9:00 p.m. you can see it here on abc 2 news. according to the most recent cnn/rc poll, when you factor in the margin of error of 3 1/2 points, this race remains a dead heat. >> thanks, charley. >>> if you want to watch those debates with a big group of people would which could be pretty fun. you'll want to head to gillman. they'll be hosting an audience discussion about the debate and the campaign as well, as well as historical coverage of importa
